British Values

and the Prevent Agenda at Horsforth School



Horsforth School is committed to serving its community. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of our local population and within the United Kingdom as a whole. Through our School ethos and curriculum, we embed the themes of tolerance, mutual respect and understanding. Through robust safeguarding procedures, we strive to ensure that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.


We follow equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.


The Government set out their definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy. These were reinforced in September 2014. These new regulations will sit alongside the Equalities Act, which applies to all schools.


The 5 British Values are:

·          Democracy

·          The Rule of Law

·          Individual Liberty

·          Mutual Respect

·          Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Students will encounter these principles through our curriculum, Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural (SMSC) provision, Behaviour and Rewards system, assemblies, trips and visits and extra-curricular activities.
